article has been artistically written reflecting on the first wave of feminists in the society.
Kate Chopin was one of the first feminists who strongly advocated for equal treatment of
women in the society. According to Matarneh and Zeidanin, the story ‘The Story of the
Hour’ is one of Chopin’s work that portrayed a patriarchal community and the suffering
women in the society had to go through. However, an attempt to free themselves from
oppression ended up tragically. The story has used symbolism to show the desperation
women were undergoing through in the society as all their efforts for repression were
frustrated by the men in a patriarchal society.

Seyersted. Louisiana: Louisiana State University Press, 1969. 352-354. Chopin was a
renown American writer who specialized in writing of short stories. ‘The Story of an
Hour’ is a story that has been skillfully created employing various literary devices. The
author has heavily invested in symbolism and humor. The author is so skillful that he
makes the death of an individual appear hilarious rather than tragic.

[Accessed 2 Dec 2018]. Charles takes a critical evaluation of the story by London Jack.
His sole aim is to understand more about the hidden information. In so doing, Charles has
found various weaknesses in the story ‘To Build a Fire.’ The author takes a philosophical
view on the text analyzing the naturalistic behavior of man when it comes to nature
survival. He, therefore, concludes that the story lacks a psychological aspect. The author
has also skillfully incorporated the ideas in a logical sequence as he refutes some of the
key concepts in London Jack’s work.

http://commons.lib.jmu.edu/jmurj/vol4/iss1/4. Roddewig has conducted a scholarly
examination of Jack London’s short story “To Build a Fire.” According to Roddewig, the
story has been artistically drafted to explain the nature of America’s politics. Just like the
untold protagonist, political decisions were made based on the short-term benefits and
ignoring future dangers that could emanate from poor decision making. The unnamed
protagonist has been given characters of masculinity, and individualism which makes him
undertake a dangerous journey to Yukon. The slow death has been used to represent the
implicit criticism of the Western ideologies and cultures. Roddewing believes that the
story ‘To Build a Fire’ has been artistically written to symbolize the critiques to the
Western ideologies, masculinity, individualism, and environmental domination.

Being a librarian and a professor, Hendrick has evaluated the progressive changes and
developments in Jack Londons works. Jack Landon was a master in the art of writing and
using various styles professionally to display his work. Jack Landon has been greatly
depicted as a naturist writer who has incorporated real issues affecting the society. In the
story, “To Build a Fire,” London has skillfully talked of the political system at his time
pinpointing the weaknesses in the political system. The untold protagonist has been used
as a symbol in the story that critiques the Western ideologies and way of governance.
London Jack. “To Build a Fire.” The Call of the White Fang and Other Stories Eds. Early labor
And Robert C. Leitz III, New York. Oxford University Express. 1998. London Jack was
a renowned American writer of his era using realism and naturism as his primary
technique of writing. Jack skillfully wrote the short story ‘To Build a Fire’ to incorporate
the theme of nature. An ignorant protagonist ignores warnings and proceeds on a
dangerous journey. Though courageous, the protagonist is perceived as being stupid since
he eventually dies of the same things that he had been warned about.
The Relationship Between the Annotated Bibliographies
Wan Xuemei, Matarnehet al. and Tolentino Jasdomin have all created an analysis of Kate’s work.
The three articles have focused on Kates work each carrying out their analysis and evaluation of
Kate’s story ‘The Story of the Hour.’ All the three scholars have skillfully evaluated the story and
subjected it to a careful analysis focusing on different issues based on their purpose and their
field of specialization.
Charles E. May, Hendricks King, and Roddewig Stephen have also focused on London Jacks
work on ‘To Build a Fire.’ They have subjected London’s work to strict scholarly scrutiny and
given a summary on the work. The three scholars have analyzed Jack London’s work differently
each based on their purpose and area of specialization. All the above-annotated bibliographies
are interconnected since they share a common topical subject.
Theme
1. Dictatorship
This is one of the most dominant themes in ‘To Build a Fire’ by London Jack. This is especially
depicted in the manner in which the protagonist treats his dog (Jack 1998). When he had had
enough of the fire and wanted to proceed, he continues and forces the dog to leave the fire
though it wanted to stay a little longer. The protagonist is dictatorial, and he does not take any
other person’s views into consideration. This is evident in the manner in which the protagonist
laughs when he is warned against going since the weather could get worse. In Chopin’s Kate
(1969) story on ‘The Story of an Hour,’ dictatorship is evidenced by Louise when she hears news
of her husband’s death. She first mourns but realizes that she had got an opportunity of being
free. The extent of mistreatment must be very significant for Louise to wish her husband dead.
Her joy is so much that she dies from overexcitement.
OR
2. Stupidity and Death
This is also a dominant feature in the two literary works. In London Jack’s work, ignorance is
displayed where the protagonist ignores several warnings only to end up dead eventually. On the
other hand, stupidity in Kates work is depicted by the act of Louise allowing herself to be so
carried away by excitement despite being aware of her health condition. The thought of
repression makes her so happy that she dies (Kate 1969).
